Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.


This month’s theme is “Wanderlust.”



BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal – Value $38


I was so excited to see BECCA in this box!


This is a creamy highlighter that is so easy to blend. You can build it to exactly the shimmer level you want, and the shimmer particles are very fine so you have a glow NOT a sparkle!

Here it is swatched (not blended in):



Shea Terra Organics African Black Soap – Value $8


I’ve sampled Shea Terra before, and I love their natural formulas. This soap uses ash as one of its key ingredients to help clear skin and prevent acne. (One word of caution, though, make sure to form a lather in your hands and then apply to your face – never apply the bar directly to your face.)


Fancy Hands Fan – Retail Value $27


This was the surprise of the box for me!


This fan is made from cherry wood and cotton and imported from Isreal. Admittedly, I’m not sure if I’ll use this, but maybe I can look to Christina Aguilera for some inspiration! 🙂


Mountain Rose Hibiscus High Tea and Bag – Value Listed $8

This tea blend is made with: Organic Hibiscus flowers, organic Rosehips, organic Lemongrass, organic Orange peel, organic Spearmint, organic Rose petals and organic Stevia.

It smells lovely, but I prefer when tea doesn’t have any stevia or sugar blended into the mix.

(And I thought it was a little weird that this bag didn’t have any sort of branded packaging/nutritional info/brewing tips, etc.)


Karuna Exfoliating Foot Masks – Value $21 total

(Each foot mask includes a set of booties.)

Foot masks are one of my favorite beauty “treat ‘yo self” items, so I couldn’t wait to try these out! You only have to wear them for 10-20 minutes, and the result is super moisturized and softer feet!

(If you’ve tried Baby Foot before, these are different. Instead of having to wash off the excess formula when you take off the booties, you’ll massage it into your feet.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $102. The value is pretty good for a $65.99 luxury box, but if you don’t like all the items it might be a miss. I’m loving the foot masks, Becca highlighter and soap in this box, so that clears the cost of the box.

What do you think of the August Indigo Beaux box?

  1. I have sensitive skin on my face, neck and hands especially and I had no trouble with Baby Foot. Liz-I have a girlfriend who is going through menopause and she carries a fan with her everywhere. The school our kids go to is always hot (there is no air conditioning and the 50-year-old boiler seems to only have one temperature), so there are usually jealous parents sitting around her at school events.

    • Gotta say, I wanted the fan just because it’s so pretty, but now I carry it in my purse and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used it! Some places are just so stuffy and a few flicks of the fan make it all better. I hope I look chic doing it, although I probably just look insane. But I love it!

    • I’d love to have the fan! I’d use it after each step in my skincare routine to make things dry faster before proceeding to the next step. I wave my hands in front of my face right now… it does give me a nice little arm workout though.

      • What a great idea! So much easier than using my hands. I must have at least a dozen fans that I use (hate hot stuffy rooms), but I never thought to use one for skin care. Total game changer. Thanks

  2. Does this mask make your feet shed like the Baby Foot?

  3. The prices seem pretty inflated. Fans like that are often sold for just a few dollars, and masks as well. Not seeing the value here.

    • Agreed.

      • Yep. That’s what I thought too. I had to check the box price twice, thinking I read it wrong. Nope.

  4. I really want to try Baby Foot! I am a little scared though, mainly because I don’t understand the process fully. Seems like it must be something strong to cause all that peeling so I guess that is why I am fearful of a bad reaction.

    • I am a HUGE Baby Foot fan – I’ve made my whole family try it! Your foot starts to peel after a few days after you use it, and continues to peel for a few more days. I can’t say for certain that it wouldn’t irritate your skin, but none of my family or friends who have tried it have had any issues.
      Hope that helps a little! 🙂
